    Default Should there be mandatory mental health screening?

    Psychiatry has a lot of value, so should there be compulsory mental health screenings for every person?

    Not weirded out. I consider and sometimes discuss issues from strongly contradicting perspectives to work out their details and morality. It's to play devil's advocate with my own passions as a test of the rationality and conviction upon which I chose them. I let myself hold both sides in my head so that they can fight the paradox out on the same ground.

    It's just having a conflict inside. All one's got to do is be open about that when they test different perspectives on other people, and no honesty is lost.

    They could get treatment, or potential issues could be identified benefiting the individual and society.

    I think they should probably screen for the most severe and detrimental mental illnesses when buying firearms (like a license).

    How I imagine priority (or anti-priority) list would go for obtaining firearms. (From immediate rejection to least rejection)
    1. Schizophrenics, especially Paranoid Schizophrenics
    2. Sadistic PD
    3. Severe AsPD
    4. Schizotypal PD
    5. Moderate AsPD
    6. BPD
    7. NPD
    8. Non-Cluster and non-schizophrenic Disorders
    9. Mentally stable

    Well, we have compulsory schooling, we have compulsory voting, and compulsory seatbelts, so why not compulsory mental health screenings?

    If they tried that on me it would break the machine. I could argue that I have at least 10 mental illnesses from Narcissistic Personality Disorder to Morgellons Disease. Hypercondriac could probably fit nice and snugly on the list too.
